About us


ACAD (Asbestos Control and Abatement Division) was founded in 1993 by the Thermal Insulation Contractors Association (TICA) to meet a need for a trade association to improve the asbestos industry.


We aim to:

  • Improve overall Health & Safety standards within the industry
  • Provide superior asbestos training to the industry
  • Act positively to promote best working practices
  • Provide accurate information to members and the industry as a whole
  • Work closely with statutory bodies such as the HSE and the Environment Agency

ACAD meets regularly with the Health & Safety Executive and represents membership views on all of their asbestos groups and committees including:

  • Asbestos Leadership Council (ALC)
  • ALC Technical Sub Committee

The administrative, training and assessment teams are supported by external advisors in HR and legal, accounts and communications. The ACAD Manager is Graham Warren.
